17th Fab Managers Forum
Wafer Fabs - Fit for the future with increased flexibility and novel energy concept
Date: 7 - 8 October, 2013
Location: Ballroom, Messe Dresden
The European fab landscape is mainly characterized by mature 200mm fabs. So the business cases of most European semiconductor fabs belong to the strong growing niches in the more than moore market.
Ensuring the competitiveness of these fabs is a key question for the semiconductor industry in Europe. The Fab Managers Forum in Dresden will focus on improved flexibility and new energy concepts. Two economical focus segments of increasing importance for European semiconductor fabs.
The cost effective supply of production capacity for a large variety of different technologies, with low numbers of production lots, is the challenge for a lot of the European Fabs.
All this has to be managed with a mature tool park, where the maintenance of the productivity is one of the key questions. But the new business fields in the more than more market requirealso innovation to fulfill the demands from this attractive nices (MEMS, Power, Lab on chip…). This requirement to our Fabs makes collaboration between device makers, but also between device makers and suppliers mandatory. The Fab Managers Forum is the platform to define and discuss the requirements for the future from the economic as well as from the political point of view.
